10 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Delirium Tremelos is a departure for Ray Wylie Hubbard in more ways than one. Most obviously, it largely eschews bluesy minimalism in favor of significantly more melodic fare, including some outright ballads ("Drivin' Wheel," "Dallas After Midnight"). At the same time, Hubbard, known as a songwriter's songwriter, mostly performs other people's songs, which is even more unusual for him. Hubbard tackles tunes by peers like James McMurtry, Gurf Morlix, David Wiffen, and Roger Tillison, among others, but he leans into everything with such gravitas you'd swear that each note originated in the center of his soul.
